They Got Away With It.

(and not just them)

Come walk with me

to my walk.

Where the Cherry Blossoms were blooming

and the bees were buzzing

and the White Tails were roaming

and the Red-bellied Woodpecker was building

and the Common Grackle was stealing

and the Peacock was roosting

and the Black Swan was grooming

and the Green Heron was profiling

and the Redhead (diving duck) was cruising

and the Raccoon was picnicking (albeit rudely)

where the Beaver was waving

and the turtles were sunning (one's an albino)

and the sky was beautiful

where even the Black Crowned Crane made an appearance

and the Great White Egret reigned supreme.

Shortly after 7 A.M.

I was outside with my doggies and saw a great mass of birds in the sky. The flock landed in a tree several houses down and I knew what they were. The Cedar Waxwings have been rather elusive this year, choosing to feed from berry shrubs other than my own. I grabbed my camera and in my flip-flops I walked through the cold, wet grass in hopes of getting close enough to snag a few photos.

I didn't want to get too close and cause them to fly away. Against the backdrop of a still rising sun I was able to get a few shots before they took off again.
